Inside Asia Tours: Vietnam, Cambodia & Laos

Insider Experience: Home-cooked dinner in Hanoi

For your first evening in Hanoi we have arranged a wonderful home-cooked dining experience in the house of a local Vietnamese family.

This is fantastic way to get to know the people and culture of Vietnam, as you share food and stories with your friendly, English-speaking hosts.

You'll travel to the suburbs of Hanoi to join your hosts as they prepare and serve dinner at their own home. Although eating out at restaurants is wonderful, there's nothing quite like being let into a real family home to see how the average Vietnamese person lives, eats and socialises. It's an experience that just can't be replicated, and you'll have the opportunity to ask all sorts of questions about life in Vietnam.

After the home meal your host will play a traditional one-stringed musical instrument that he has made himself. All in all, the evening is sure to leave you with lasting memories!
